Killaloe Chamber Music Festival

in Killaloe, Co. Clare

Killaloe Chamber Music Festival is back with three music filled days over the weekend of the 10th, 11th and 12th June 2016.

Music is a form of expression. Be it a simple tune, a basic rhythm or an elaborate phrase, music is the language of choice for the composer as well as the performing musician. And as with spoken language our expression through music has changed dramatically over the centuries. 

The 4th Killaloe Chamber Music Festival wants to highlight this transformation of musical style by taking you, the audience, on a journey through time. Beginning in the Baroque period of the mid 17th century we will revisit the Classical greats Mozart and Beethoven, eventually arriving at the Romantic age. The language of today will feature in each of our 6 concerts with music from the US, Japan and Estonia, works by Irish composer Ian Wilson as well as Hollywood giant Ennio Morricone. We will experience the ever changing musical textures from the sounds of the harpsichord, recorder and gut strings through to the accordion and marimba. On Sunday a lecture by musicologist Michael Murphy provides an easy to understand guide to style in music while talented local children will play their hearts out.
